Go into iphoto and set the destination folder somewhere you want the photos and there should also be a preference like in itunes to keep the library clean or together choose that if it doesnt work still pick a new destination and move all your photos to there. You may have to drag and drop the photos back into Iphoto but that should do it.

How do i download raw images from my Canon to I photo. Normally no problem with jpegs, now starting to shoot only in Raw


iPhoto isn't the greatest when it comes to dealing with RAW images, but it can:

iPhoto 11 Edit RAW format photos

I would recommend a more powerful photo editor such as Lightroom or something similar.

I cannot transfer pictures from IPhoto to Facebook because it will not accept my password & e-mail address


I assume you refer to iMac fails to.

you will most likely have to reset all personal security details. A pain, have done a few resets where I forget these details so I would think this will be the same procedure. Best I can come up with.

Can't import to my iMac IPhoto library


if the Library is damaged then you will need to select to open it manualy or take a copy to some on with a PC so you can manual get the filed out of the library, when you have done that create a new library and import the pictures, make sure that in the settings that you put a copy in to the new library.
if you get stuck the apple.com site is good for that info.

My iphoto icon on deck has a ciricle with a line though it which means no. I can not open iphoto. it states it could be damaged .


Hi there, there is a easy fix to this problem. What you are first wanting to do is to make a backup of your iPhoto library. The default place is User(Your Home Folder) / Pictures/ iPhoto Library. What you are going to want to do is right click the iPhoto library and select duplicate. Then just click and drag that new iPhoto library you just made to the desktop. Now what you want to do is to install iLife again. Just insert the iLife disk and follow the on screen instructions. Once that is done you should be able to open iPhoto again. If for some reason when you open iPhoto and your photos are not there, then close iPhoto and you want to place the new iPhoto Library that we put on the desktop into U ser(Your Home Folder) / Pictures/ Now drop the iPhoto Library and make sure that it is called iPhoto Library and not iPhoto Library Duplicate, if that is the case then right click the file name and click get info, then just rename it iPhoto Library. Now you are done, open iPhoto and you should have all your photos again.
If for some reason this still does not work, then once again close iPhoto, this time we are going to open it agin but while we open it we are going to hold the option key down too. A menu should pop-up asking you what library you would like to use, all you want to do is select the one that says is located in User(Your Home Folder) / Pictures/ iPhoto Library.

I hope this helps you, Justin

I have a 250gb G-Drive with 10.4 iMac and have transfer photos from iPhoto Library to the G- Drive to give more room in the library. Now I am trying to delete the photos still in the iPhoto Library that...


Hi,


1. Drag or export the photos to another device and delete the originals out of I photo. The problem with this is that you will no longer be able to revert those images to your originals. Using the export function for this gives you more options than drag and drop.

2. Hold down the option key when you open I photo will allow you to create a new I photo library on an external drive hooked to a USB. This means you have all the options of I photo, while storing the images somewhere else.

3. Copy and paste your entire existing I photo library to an external USB drive, then delete as much of your old library as you wish which could be all of it. Do this from your pictures folder on your hard drive, not I photo itself. This option allows your photos elsewhere while preserving all the I photo functions including your ability to revert to original.

Let us know if you want something else please accept the solution.

Thank You for contacting fixya.com

The iMac G4 17" freezes cursor moves but nothing works.


Could be a lot of things. Try running Disk Utility from your install DVD:

http://support.apple.com/kb/ts1417

After that, if issues persist, try booting in Safe Boot Mode:

http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1455
If the issue is resolved in Safe Boot, try removing third party startup items:
http://www.thexlab.com/faqs/startupitems.html


If the issue persists in Safe Boot mode, try a new user.
http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=Mac/10.5/en/8235.html
If issue is resolved in a new user, then you know it's something just in your user.
Delete the contents of the following, where ~ represents your user's home folder:
~/Library/Launch Agents
~/Library/Launch Daemons
~/Library/Startup Items
~/Library/Caches

This will usually resolve the issue.

If it persists in the new user, then the issue is likely with the operating system itself. At this point you should Archive and Install:

I moved my iphoto library onto an external harddrive and now when i open it, the albums are there but the pictures all show up as exclamation points. is there any way to fix this or are all my photos lost?


no, they are not lost. what that means is your mac is looking for where the photos should be, in the library, and they are not there anymore. Are you opening it from the external drive, or from your macs regular drive.

Trying to install Olympus Digital wave recorder software on new Imac


Mac OS-X should recognize the camera without having to install software.  Plug the camera into the USB port and turn it on.  It should appear on the desktop as an external hard drive.  It may also start iPhoto up in import mode.  You can also import photos by selecting "Add to Library" from the drop down menu.
